  1. Had a nice breakfast with Eric (Copper City) and Walt this morning at KFUL (FUllerton, CA). Off they go on their way to AZ! My CTLSi has a new owner and home... Time to decide what's next up for me!? Tecnam P2008 Turbo? Move up to 4 seats? (Tecnam P2010, Cirrus SR22, Cessna 182) who knows - but figuring it out is half the fun for me!
  2. Adam, it’s John! The guy from NY with the fuel cart questions. Have you flown the Sling 2? They are right down from you, The Airplane Factory in Torrance, KTOA. 

    I was also looking at the RV-12 S-LSA, but jumped to the Sling once I flew it. 

    Im having one built now, hoping for delivery late April or May. 

    Good Luck!

  3. I did a search on Tecnam Talk (their user forum) and didn't see anyone talking about speed. I'll have to ask around.
  4. I (like to) think its somewhat of a misnomer that all Sport Pilots had medical issues and thus were forced to LSA in order to remain in the air. I think the 2nd chapter of folklore was with the advent of basic med, the LSA market would dry up like a fart in the wind. I never had such medical restrictions, I was always attracted to the modern air frame and low operating costs. 4.5 GPH on MoGas sure beats 11.5 GPH on 100LL. For me it was always about mission. I don't fly coast to coast, I'm a fair weather burger chaser. I fly for fun, the joy is getting to the destination, not being at the destination (like it is for my wife). The majority of my flying is either alone or with other pilots chasing a burger on a beautiful So Cal day. I looked long and hard at new Cirrus SR20, 22, and Cessna 182's. Seemed like way too much capital and ongoing operating costs to go get a hamburger! Instead of changing my mission to fit the bigger plane, I was always looking for a way to have "new" "modern" "safe" "low operating cost" and relatively speaking "low capital costs". Some folks are "all in" and fly constantly. For me, flying is a hobby - one of many conflicting priorities. There are times I go for 2 or 3 months without flying and others when I'm up two or three times a week. An LSA lets me fly when I want to fly, and keeps the total carrying cost low. A fully loaded Cirrus SR22 GTS goes for $750,000 right now. Contrast that with a brand new fully loaded CT at $172,000. It's a complete apple to an orange in capability, but my mission remains fair weather burger chasing - so for my world, the most cost effective remains an LSA!
  5. I have not bought anything yet. I always sell first, then buy (fear of having two planes and one hangar I suppose). After 3 CT's, I had been leaning toward a Tecnam P2008 with 914 Turbo, BRS and Garmin G3X avionics suite, just to be different. I have always loved Tecnam's fit and finish. I intend to do a little looking around before plunking down my deposit. It actually feels a tad bit liberating to have an empty hangar for awhile!
  6. Hi Roger, That is the buyer! He came over this weekend to inspect/fly, and we agreed on the price today. You'll be doing the future maintenance, and Eric will be asked to be his transition CFI / Ferry Pilot. We still have to do paperwork and all that good stuff, so it will be a few more weeks.
  7. SOLD. Thanks for inquiries.
  8. Hi Roger - I'll take one! Sending PayPal now! (Keep the extra I sent - I felt your price was too low) Adam Coffey 20316 Umbria Way Yorba Linda, CA 92886
  9. The LSA weight limit is a great topic for a separate thread - here I am just selling an airplane :-)
  10. SInce I am the poster, I think that makes me uniquely qualified to know what I meant when I said that. In my mind I was thinking of the fact that there are CTLS float planes out there that are legally flown at 1430 lbs. Nowhere in my post did I say a person should fly above LSA limits. Perhaps my words were confusing - not my intent so let me simply restate: "The useful load of N764AC is 466" I'll edit my previous post so as to eliminate the confusion.
  11. Empty weight is 854 - Max Useful Load is 466. Weight and Balance.pdf
  12. Yes - It's a 912iS "Sport"
  13. I wont shed any tears if my phone doesnt ring :-)
  14. Offered for sale is a lightly used (~50 hours) Jubilee Edition CTLSi. This aircraft has a Dec 2015 S/N, but was actually delivered to me in July of 2016. It is a fully loaded CTLSi. Dual Dynon Skyview Touch with ADSB in and out, has the auxiliary knob panel, Skyview autopilot, transponder, Garmin 796 w XM, Garmin GTR225 com, PS Industries PM3000 Intercom so on and so forth. The only option I didn't order was the seat belt airbags. Tundra Gear, BRS parachute all the usual stuff... Plane is up to date with all Rotax and Flight Design SB's. All maint has been performed by California Power Systems "CPS" in Corona. Cost new as configured is $179k, save $30k and take this one that is already "dialed in". You can see more on my website, www.CoffeyAviation.com the plane is based out of Fullerton, CA at KFUL. I go through cars and planes like people change their shoes! No issues or problems with this bird. Going to buy a new plane at a different price point and need to empty my hangar first.
  15. Mark - while I have you on the horn... Talk to me about the Astore v p2008. Which is your favorite (and why)?
